for this was the ronald reagan operation, the ronald reagan campaign and the ongoing echoes of that campaign. they didn't have one organization, but they had a series of organizations to make certain that they played for the long pull. they played for history. and they were in many ways effective in doing that. now we're in the 21st century. and what president obama did during the campaign, he took the most creative thinkers that he could find, people to use the cliche who think out of the box. he married them up, if you will, wedded them, molded them into the information era high technology whiz people who knew how to leverage the information age to his electoral advantage. now that's what they want to do with this organize for action. and frankly, i wouldn't bet against them. this could be very, very effective as he tries to get his agenda going and maintain it. but make no mistake, we are dealing here and the country is dealing with and the republicans are dealing with a somewhat different barack obama. you could feel it today. it's been coming for some days, i think, that in the first term he was y
candidates who could carry even massachusetts. think eisenhower, think ronald reagan. well, lately, the party has been running candidates who can't get much closer to the northeast than ohio. and not even that, the last two times. it's a whole part of the country, the northeast, with lots of people living in it that's become foreign territory. last night, i watched the u.s. house of representatives become hurricane aid. i now call the party of guns that were people. its instinct is to fight for guns. last night, it was aid for the northeast. does anyone out there think it would stop there? the move is to increasingly vote for guns, vote for war, vote against people. why? i cannot figure. to paraphrase an old saying, guns don't vote, people do. we've seen the horror of crazed killers with semi-automatic weapons. we still haven't caught sight of those darn helicopters. thanks for being with us. "the ed show" with e schultz starts right now. >> this is our first task as a society. keeping our children safe. this is how we will be judged. >> the president lays it all on the line for ne
the inauguration of president ronald reagan where we enjoyed a balmy 55 degree day. >>ates beautiful day. >> as can you hear, there's a crowd behind us here. the beginnings of some of the grassroots -- some of the people i guess out rehearsing for the parade. >> it's now 2 degrees above zero. the high is expected today to hor in the 2's or absorbing but the wind chill factor now has dropped to 17 degrees below zero. another reason why the parade has been canceled and the public swearing in ceremonies have been moved inside. >> it's nice and warm in here. the president said that he did not want to break p a winning team, but he is bringing in a new coach and general manager. >> mr. secretary, how are you going to whip this place into shape? >> i'm not going whip it into hap. i'm going to gradually get it into shape. >> with more senator pat moynihan. senator moynihan, any thoughts about what the bush presidency is likely to be now that we've seen how he has been behaving during this transition? >> very different from what we've had, and we're all very proud of him and happy for him today and looking
resemblance to the party of ronald reagan that would have responded to powell's concerns with an all hands on deck effort to win the war back. it's big enough to win back the white house in 2016. and that's, to the point, we have a more and more bifurcated congress, not the congress you served in. there were 49 votes, only 49 votes for sandy relief last night. that says a lot. there were more than 49 votes for gulf damage and repair after katrina. >> colin powell is a moderate, but i'll tell you what, i understand why ronald reagan reached out to colin powell and saw him as a future leader of the republican party when he let him run the joint chiefs. we need moderate republicans like colin powell on our side. we've run him off. we've run a lot of other moderate republican voters off, and if you want to win 49 states again like ronald reagan won in 1984, if we want to win the landslides that george h.w. bush won, we're going to have to have a much bigger tent, and we can't be the party of todd aiken or richard murdoch or sharon ankle or christine o'donnell. republican extremism in the repub
parallel here for a previous two-term president. check this out. this is ronald reagan's first-term portrait and this is ronald reagan's second-term portrait. put those up, side by side. that is how president reagan went from portrait one to portrait two. start of term one to start of term two. now look at president obama. see similarities there? it's not like every president does this. just reagan and now obama. i think people make too much of the political parallels between obama and reagan, but aesthetically, you kind of can't make too much of this one. in this case in the evolution of the official portrait, i think you can make as much of this parallel that you want to because that's kind of an uncanny thing, isn't it? the newport rat is out. the new term is about to start. we here at msnbc and everybody in the news business is gearing up for inaugural weekend coverage. this will be my second time covering an inauguration. we'll have the whole schedule for you of when everything happens and when it's going to be on tv. that's coming up a little later on in the show tonight.
them, this is ronald reagan speaking, urging them to listen to the american public and to the law enforcement community and support a ban on the further manufacture of military-style assault weapons. >> oh, quoting their hero. the logic is so simple, even a child can understand it. and many children do. the president was accompanied today by young people who wrote him letters asking for changes after sandy hook. one little boy named grant wrote dear president obama. i think there should be some changes in the laws with guns. it's a free country, but i recommend there needs to be a limit with guns. please don't let people own machine guns or other powerful guns like that. i think there should be a good reason to get a gun. we should learn from what happened to the people at sandy hook. p.s., i know you're doing your best. maybe the children know more than we do, as a society. the president has an obligation to these children and he does not take it lightly. >> in the letter that julia wrote me, she says i know that laws have to be passed by congress. but i beg you to try very hard.
was canceled because of weather was in 1985, when it was about 7 degrees, snowy, icy. ronald reagan decided to stay inside and not hold the parade. today, the weather looks good. it's crisp. the show will go on, matt. >> far cry from that. willie, we'll check in with you during the morning as well. thank you very much. >>> lester holt is also here on capitol hill somewhere behind me. good morning to you. >> reporter: matt, good morning. we have a great view, the platform where the president will be sworn in, 10,000-square-foot platform will be filled with members of the house and senate, supreme court, members of the cabinet along with the diplomatic core and others. the program gets under way about 11:30. it should last about an hour and a half. james taylor, kelly clarkson and beyonce, who will sing the national anthem at the close of the ceremony. chief justice roberts will administer the sceremonial oath the lincoln bible and the travel bible owned by the reverend dr. martin luther king jr., whose birthday we celebrate today. in that speech worry told the president will talk about the n
the states. the states created the federal government. >>> that was ronald reagan on january 20th 1981. i remember watching that with my father. my dad just kept saying so much that my mom finally said george, shut up i heard it the first time. my dad kept saying if he lives long enough, he'll change the country and the world. he was right. that's what's so exciting about these days mika. so special. i remember lying in a fetal position on the floor after bill clinton won in 1992. >> that was a special day. >> thinking my world had come to an end. i just -- i loathed the guy. but i remember watching him deliver the inaugural address. just for a split second i said maybe, maybe -- and i think that's the magic of every inauguration. >> in all your years, you've learned to love him. >> i wouldn't go that far. >> oh yes, you would. >> we like each other. >> you should see them together at the clinton global initiative. makes me want to puke. welcome back to a special edition of "morning joe." >> i'm trying to be upbeat here. hope springs eternal on this day. >> it sure does. lo
so-called. now we're standing inside this symbol of our democracy. >> ronald reagan back in 1985. at 73 years of age, delivering his second inaugural address and making reference to the fact that on that day in washington, back in 1985, it was 7 degrees outside, so the proceedings were moved inside the capitol rotunda. take a look at the crowds that are now building just behind us here on the mall. people also gathering along the parade route even though the parade won't start for several hours. but those are just some of the 500,000 to 700,000 people expected in washington this morning for the second inauguration of barack obama. >>> every day, thousands of letters are delivered to the white house. and every night, the president handwrites responses to just a select few. kevin tibbles has the story of one letter from a tiny town in northern minnesota. >> reporter: wely. seems like winter. below zero windchill. >> reporter: folks here like to joke about living at the end of the road. >> we have all kinds of decrcree ways of making the white season theatrical. >> reporter: fell in
americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country. >> ronald reagan gave the first inaugural address from the west front of the capitol. in doing so issued a manifesto of the area's conservative tide. >> in this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem. >> but the most recent inaugural address was that given by barack obama. >> this is the price and the promise of citizen ship. this is the source of our confidence, the knowledge that god calls on us to shape and uncertain destiny. this is the meaning of our liberty and our creed, why men and women and children of every race and every faith can join in celebration across this magnificent mall, and why a man whose father who less than 60 years ago might not have been served in a local restaurant can now stand before you to take a most sacred oath. >> wow. at its best, inaugural justice for a presidency, what a lead sentence does for a book. it captures the duration of what's to come. a great presidency often begins with a great statement. in the day that m
a likability factor here that rivals ronald reagan, right? and it's very similar to that. but more people disapprove of his policies than approve of them. and so when you look at that, he's mindful of that a little bit. he's got a power to persuade when you have those kind of likability numbers. but at the same time, the public is sort of screaming at all of washington to do what savannah was talking about. and when we asked him wa kihat of message you want to send, he said fix this economy, create jobs and is for gosh sakes, compromise. i'm told in this anaugural address, he's going to be pragmatic of hope and is change rather than the full scale high level expectations you had four years ago, brian. >> and, chuck, these are speeches for the ages, the long view. but how much of current events do you think will be in it? we were speculating last night about two things in particular, number one, gun violence and the need, as the president sees it, to attack that as an issue quickly and, number two, we're going to be introducing doris kearns goodwin later on. what is the chance he doesn't q
solar panels on the white house, that ronald reagan later tore down. but jimmy carter's vision of government is getting a little bit more of a second chance, i think, with obama's second speech. >> reaffirmed, perhaps, even. >> luke, you've covered the hill. what was the hill's response, yesterday, to the president's speech, to the events of -- >> before president obama had even left the luncheon, there was a statement out from cathy mcmorris rodgers, number 4 in the house gop conference who basically said, okay, there's a lot of nice words in this speech, but we would like to see some literal action. and the literal action is persuading the senate to pass a budget so we can move forward on fiscal issues. so i think you'll see some folks on the republican side, say, it was a beautiful moment for their country. obviously, they'll understand the significance of having an african-american president sworn in for a second time. but today, there was a press conference at 5:00 p.m., which is the first time we heard from house speaker john boehner since december 21st. i'm sure that the
